Dizzy Gillespie is one of the most expressive & virtuosic improvisers in the history of music. But he was much more than that. As one of the primary creators of the bebop & Afro-Cuban revolutions, he twice fundamentally changed the way jazz improvisation was done. And he transformed the aesthetic of big band jazz. This vivid biography takes us on the road with the great Calloway, Hines, & Eckstine bands & to Cheraw, S.C.’s cotton fields, Harlem’s’ after-hours clubs, the teeming 1940s N.Y. 52nd St. jazz scene, the rhythmic barrios of Havana, Rio’s samba festivals, the White House, & the world’s great concert halls as Dizzy teamed up with prodigious talents to make great music during a career spanning 55 years.
